Imaging Small Craters on the Way to Endeavour
Sol 2433 - November 27, 2010
Opportunity continues to make good progress towards Endeavour crater while collecting remote-sensing science observations (imaging) of small craters along the way.
The rover drove on Sols 2429 (Nov. 23, 2010) and 2433 (Nov. 27, 2010), covering over 81 meters (266 feet), and 89 meters (292 feet) respectively. An alpha particle X-ray spectrometer (APXS) atmospheric argon measurement was performed on Sol 2430 (Nov. 24, 2010). The miniature thermal emission spectrometer (Mini-TES) elevation mirror is opened to the environment at regular intervals in the possibility of eventual cleaning by wind events. Wheel currents continue to be well-behaved during the extensive driving.
